ABBA The Concert

by The Staff on May 8, 2014

Palace Theatre, Thursday


“This is the closest to ABBA you’ll ever get,” says the press materials for ABBA the Concert. Depending on who you are, this statement is either an enticement or a warning. Of course, this show doesn’t actually feature the legendary Swedish disco quartet, the two founding couples of whom have long since divorced. But it does feature the group’s rhythm section, which, we suppose, is one degree more authentic than Mamma Mia!. Don’t worry, they’ll play the hits. And you can sing along. Just leave the old leisure suit in the attic. (May 8, 7:30 PM, $37-$62, 19 Clinton Ave., Albany, 465-3334)
